How well does Francesco Molinari know ... Francesco Molinari?

Here's some jackass yelling in the middle of Tiger's swing on the 18th tee at the Open

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy shared hugs outside the scoring room at the British Open either side of a brief private chat, two champions experiencing similar disappointment after coming up short at Carnoustie on Sunday.

But just when one of the greatest sporting comebacks of all time seemed on the cards, Woods failed to pull off a risky flop shot to get out of trouble on the 11th and ran up a deflating double bogey.

"It was great, just to be a part of it and hear the roars", said the four-time major victor. You know, everything. There's a lot of big names up there.

I can not believe there are actually people who think Tiger Woods should not be picked for the Ryder Cup.

Then something fantastic by today's standards happened: Woods teed off and started putting together a great final round, and others started falling off. Improbably, Woods found himself someplace he hadn't for quite some time.

That vaulted McIlroy into a six-way tie for the lead and Rose joined the expanding group on six under with a tap-in birdie on 18, two days after he needed a birdie on the same hole just to make the cut.

Israeli forces carried out the rescue on Saturday night following a request from the "US, Canada , and European Union countries". The group says it has saved over 114,000 lives and has lost the lives of 204 White Helmet volunteers since its founding in 2014.

Woods, playing at his first British Open since 2015, rolled back the clocks on Saturday with a sizzling 66 - his best round at an Open since winning at a similarly parched Hoylake in 2006.

Defending champion Jordan Spieth went into the final round tied for the lead with Schauffele and Kevin Kisner, but stumbled to the turn in 39 and Kisner managed one shot worse to throw the tournament wide open. I need to try and keep it in perspective because, the beginning of the year, if they'd have said you're playing The Open Championship, I would have said I'd be very lucky to do that. Molinari, who won the Quicken Loans National two weeks ago for his first PGA TOUR victory, now has his sights set on his best finish in the FedExCup standings. Tiger was as back as he's ever going to be, and if that means contending at major championships, then certainly people are going to back him at the betting window.

"I played with him the final day at Wentworth, where he won, and he didn't miss a shot". Asked if he felt today's young stars would have to fight off Woods for a few years to come, McIlroy said, "Yeah".

"I didn't get off to a great start, but I hung in there, and I have no regrets". "I hope I'm a part of Europe's team because I think it's [looking] very, very good", he said on Sunday.

"I played patiently. I put good swings on it".

"It will be interesting to see going forward, but this was his first taste of major championship - of the drama, I guess, for quite a while (of the final round)".
